Our life is built upon many things as we walk through it day by day. Relationships are what most of those building blocks hinge upon. Like it or not, the way we connect with people almost always determine the outcome of why those encounters exist to begin with. It is an infallible truth that people connect with people out of sheer need for one reason or another. It may be monetary, emotional, physical, etc., but bottom line remains the fact that there is a need for that connection. Relationships are so vast in number and reason, and the personalities of the human race far exceed that vastness without question. It is so easy to mislead, to misinterpret, or misuse one another and thus the outcome of a relationship can turn like a small boat on stormy waters within a fragment of time.

The human race seems to be the most fragile among all other living creatures upon the earth and yet we are created in the Lord’s image. Why? Because we were created to possess the very nature of God which is love and yet with our sinful nature in the midst, we can simultaneously carry very callous and insincere emotions that are definitely not of our Lord and creator while we stand adamantly convinced that we are justified for feeling the way we do. All of this I express in order to attempt to convey the very reason that we need God in our lives first and foremost.

Mankind was created with a hole, if you will, that only the Spirit of God can fill. It is a place for God to be in us, to live in us, to guide us unto all truth. The bible says in Matthew 22:40 that you can, “hang the whole law and the prophets on only two commandments” which is Matthew 22:37 -39:

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

Can you imagine what kind of world we would live in if we applied only these two commandments to every single person in our lives? Can you imagine the outcome of every single relationship if we applied only these two commandments? We tend to decide who and what someone is from our own point of view and opinion. We judge within ourselves who is more righteous and who is fit for the kingdom and who is not. How do we win a soul to God and even keep that soul no less if we are busy playing God? We as saints of God have a huge responsibility upon us and that is to be witnesses unto men. How can we win a soul if we are preoccupied judging the mere nature of a man? No attribute of a man can trump the soul of that man. God alone can take any flaw and turn it into a testimony to win yet another soul to Himself. Oh wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from the body of this death (Romans 7:24).

Our sole goal in this life is to win souls. Period. The only way to win souls is through relationships. Relationships are based upon one thing and that is love. We must not love in word only but in deed also (1 John 3:18). We must tell the great mystery of God as the bible speaks of which is the truth of who He is (Ephesians Chapter 3, the whole chapter).  The bible says that if the truth be hid, it is hid unto those that are lost (2 Corinthians 4:3). No one can enter into a healthy relationship with anyone unless they really know that person first.  This is the job of the saints that the army of the Lord may multiply in order to win yet more souls so that they may all be led unto their rightful place. God said that he would that no soul die lost (1 Timothy 2:4).

I close with this poem:

Today is the Day

Today is the day the Lord has made

And I will surely rejoice

I intend to give Him the highest praise

For Him, I will lift up my voice

Come on all this land, come and see

This great King and mighty is He

You won’t believe what life can be

Until He reveals your eternity

What a difference He makes

In your heart and soul

How refreshing His love devine

You just don’t know like I know

Of His grace so merciful and kind

God please grant me the wisdom to show

To this world so needy and blind

That happiness is found in things above

And not those to be left behind

If everyone knew of your unfailing love

And that you are what makes love true

They would run to you with open arms

And there would be nothing left to do

We could continue our journey to Heaven above

And live our lives anew

It’s time to begin a great work here below

Please help us to know what to do

For the harvest here truly is ripe Lord

And the laborers truly are few.
